The only Luis Robert Bowman Chrome base Superfractor rookie in existence will be up for bid in Lelands’ 2020 Fall Classic Auction opening Sunday, Nov. 15.
This PSA gem mint 10 has been in possession of the consigner since the card was pulled back in 2018. He recently submitted it for grading at PSA, which then featured it on Instagram to promote its “Freshly Certified” series.
This sale will establish the market for this card, but experts at Lelands believe the winning bid will be north of $20,000. In 2018, Luis Robert was considered one of the premier blue-chip prospects in all of baseball. This year, he proved the prognosticators right by becoming one of four finalists for American League Rookie of the Year, leading all rookies this season in RBI and tied for first in home runs. He finished second among MLB rookies in runs, extra-base hits, and total bases. His slugging percentage was third among rookies.
Lelands experts believe this may be the only chance for someone to own this card for quite some time.
“Luis Robert could go on to have a Hall of Fame career, and this ‘1-of-1’ specimen will skyrocket in value as his career progresses,” says Lelands Acquisition Director Jordan Gilroy. “I would not be surprised if the winning bidder puts this card away until Robert’s career is over.”
Lelands 2020 Fall Classic Auction opens for bidding Sunday, Nov. 15, at 7 p.m. EST and continues for four weeks until Dec. 11. You can preview the 2018 Bowman Chrome Luis Robert Superfractor Rookie at lelands.com all this week.
